(WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.) — Florida State’s defense put on a show on Saturday. The Seminoles (9-0) crushed Wake Forest (4-6) 59-3 and forced seven turnovers in the win.
Heisman trophy candidate Jameis Winston threw two touchdowns and had 159 yards in the victory and the team tied a school record for interceptions with six.
“For us to be a great team, both (offense and defense) have got to be clicking,” Winston said. “When they’re getting turnovers and scoring touchdowns just like that, sometimes it is hard (to stay in a rhythm) but obviously, I’ve got to do a better job of commanding the team and leading us.”
Wake Forest quarterback Tyler Cameron was held to just 63 yards and threw three picks in the blowout loss.
Nate Andrews recorded a 56-yard interception for the touchdown and Jalen Ramsey followed with a 23-yard fumble return on the next play.
“Today,” coach Jim Grobe said, “was just a comedy of errors.”
“We were down 35-0, maybe, and I don’t think the defense had hardly been on the field,” he continued.
The 59 points scored by FSU broke a school record that was set back in 1994 with 56 points at home.
